Management Simulations

 

Role-playing games provide real-world lessons

MIT Sloan has long been a pioneer among business schools when it comes to action learning—creating real-world applications of classroom knowledge. Management flight simulations are the latest such application. These innovative and interactive tools create a virtual world in which students explore and participate in the critical management issues facing a range of industries and organizations.

Management flight simulations bring an experiential aspect to learning about complex systems. This type of action learning has more impact on students than simply listening to a lecture or engaging in a case study discussion. Students who participate in a simulation can see the immediate consequences of their decisions and learn what it’s truly like to juggle competing priorities amidst a constant influx of information.

Each management simulation offers video user guides and online instructions for students. Registered educators can access video teaching notes and slides that introduce and debrief all aspects of the simulation.

 

Strategy Simulations

CleanStart

  CleanStart: Simulating a Clean Energy Startup

 

Developers: John Sterman, David Miller and Joe Hsueh

In this live, web-based simulation, participants play the role of the founder of a new startup company in the exciting and competitive clean tech sector. Can you develop your technology into a successful company? Each quarter you must set prices, decide how many engineers and sales people to hire, and set compensation, including salary, stock, options and profit sharing. Will you pitch your firm to venture capitalists or bootstrap and remain 100% employee owned? Will you win customers and become cash flow positive before you run out of funds? Will you succeed and take your firm public?

 

Eclipsing the Competition: The Solar PV Industry Simulation

Eclipsing the Competition: The Solar PV Industry Simulation

 

Developer: John Sterman

In this live web-based simulation, participants play the role of senior management at SunPower, a leading firm in the solar photovoltaic industry. The game simulates the solar PV industry as described in the SunPower case study. Users compete against other firms, simulated by the computer, and set the industry conditions so as to learn about strategy under different conditions relating to learning, knowledge spillovers, and competitor behavior.

 

Fishbanks

Fishbanks: A Renewable Resource Management Simulation

 

Developers: Dennis Meadows and John Sterman

Fishbanks is a multiplayer web-based simulation in which participants play the role of fishers and seek to maximize their net worth as they compete against other players and deal with variations in fish stocks and their catch. Participants buy, sell, and build ships; decide where to fish; and negotiate with one another. Policy options available to instructors include auctions of new boats, permits, and quotas.

 

Platform Wars

Platform Wars: Simulating the Battle for Video Game Supremacy

 

Developer: John Sterman

In this live web-based simulation, participants play the role of senior management at a video game hardware platform producer, such as Sony, Nintendo, or Microsoft. Built around a companion case study describing the launch of Sony’s PlayStation 3, the simulation explores the dynamics of competition in multi-sided markets. In such markets, success depends not only on a product’s price and features, but also on how many people own it (a direct network externality) and on the number of games and applications available—that is, the size of the installed base of complementary products (an indirect network externality). Platform markets are increasingly common in settings other than video games, including computers, the Internet and e-commerce, and mobile telecommunications.

Salt Seller

Salt Seller: A Commodity Pricing Simulation

 

Developer: John Sterman

In this live web-based simulation, participants playing the role of salt producers seek to maximize their profits as they compete against one another in pricing salt. This game simulates the salt industry as it is described in the “Ventures in Salt: Compass Minerals International” case study.

World Climate: Negotiating a Global Climate Change Agreement

 

Developers: John Sterman, Thomas Fiddaman, Travis Franck, Andrew Jones, Stephanie McCauley, Philip Rice, Juliette N. Rooney-Varga, Elizabeth Sawin and Lori Siegel

World Climate, a climate policy simulation model developed by Climate Interactive in conjunction with the System Dynamics Group at the MIT Sloan School of Management, provides an interactive role-play environment through which participants explore the risks of climate change and the challenges of negotiating international agreements to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In a live, face-to-face setting, participants play the roles of major GHG emitting nations and negotiate proposals to reduce emissions through the year 2100. Participants then receive immediate feedback on the implications of their proposals for atmospheric GHG concentrations, global mean surface temperature, sea level rise, and other impacts. World Climate enables participants to explore the dynamics of the climate and impacts of proposed policies in a way that is consistent with the best available peer-reviewed science but that does not prescribe what should be done.
